In my organization, we use Exchange Server for data management. The cache copy of user account on Exchange Server creates OST file. As OST files allow users to work offline and synchronize the changes with Exchange Server when they connect to the server again. But many times, the situation arises where Exchange Server goes through unplanned downtime due to which mailboxes cannot be synced. To avoid such a situation in future, I planned to import OST to eM Client. As eM Client is the default email application on my machine to manage my email data.

In the following write-up, I have come up with a solution to transfer OST to eM Client application after executing the process by my own.
